Join us for special program in advance of our gala event, to hear the remarkable stories of two hidden children: award winning author and educator Johanna Reiss, and Evi Blaikie, writer and co-founder of the Hungarian Hidden Children group.

Calligraphy is the art of beautiful writing. Before the age of printing, calligraphy was used to make books and documents and for all written communication. Today we study it as an art form, both for fine-art and commercial use, but also for the great pleasure of making something beautiful. As part of her exhibit, A la Mémoire des Enfants Déportés, artist Eleanor Winters will offer an introductory workshop for adults, focusing on the tools and techniques of the calligrapher. Participants will learn how to use a traditional broad-edged calligraphy pen to reproduce the basic forms of Italic and Gothic calligraphy.

Anne Frank: A Family Photo Album

June 24, 2014 through August 29, 2014

Exhibit can be viewed Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Opening reception Tuesday, June 24 2014 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

As part of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Night at the Museums

Please join The Anne Frank Center during LMCC’s Night at the Museums for the opening of our exhibit, Anne Frank: A Family Photo Album. Just like any average family, the photo album of the Frank family begins with the birth of their first child. As an amateur photographer, Otto Frank has a single theme: the life and times of his daughters, Anne and Margot. Through these intimate photographs, salvaged along with Anne?s diary following the arrest, we gain a glimpse into the life of this German-Jewish family forced to flee their country during the 1930s.
